Take Me Down To Martha's Farm

Rolling hills, winding dirt roads, huge tracts of land, classic American homes... Such are my impressions of Pound Ridge, NY and environs, during a lovely drive around the area with my Pound-Ridge-ian friends, Kevin and Stephen, who I visited on Monday. Many celebrities call this area home, among them a recent arrival named Martha Stewart, whose 'farm' we drove by. This amalgamation of century-old farmsteads resembles at first glance a historical restoration, a la Old Sturbridge Village. Oddly, what looks like the newly-built main residence is right near the fence. You'd think she'd have put it far away from curious eyes, being a recent project and all. Or, perhaps this gargantuan stone mosaic building is actually a guest house or even a barn. Later, we passed a residential community more suggestive of Martha's immediate future: the Taconic Women's Correctional Facility. : - ) It did look odd, surrounded by high fence of barbed wire, amid the placid and tony surroundings.

Check out the fake Bill Clinton blog. Very cute. : - ) I wish he really would start a blog.
